On January 5, 2016, a fire burned down Flavio Bisciotti’s home art studio. The loss included his personal paintings, photographs and ephemera, furniture, objects, tools, materials, clothing, files, and things he had collected over his lifetime. After the initial shock and after speaking with friends, he came up with the idea to salvage the remains of the fire to create new artworks. Flavio has curated art exhibits in the past that has involved local artists. His idea for this exhibition is a collaborative community effort where the participants are able to make art to strengthen their relationship with fellow participants. The name of this project and series of exhibitions is called Palimpsest.
Flavio Bisciotti is a multi-faceted individual with several deep areas of interest. This includes his artwork, and also his company Bisciotti design+build and his championing of artists through his art gallery, FAB-gallery in Santa Monica.
